24th March 1941

Heavy rain all day. Heard for the first time this afternoon that besides the coin drawer, the coins exhibition case was attacked and also the Contributions Box, which was seriously damaged, large pieces being broken off. Obviously the thief had plenty of time and excellent opportunity.

Tonight, soon after 11p.m., I was making my final patrol of the building, when I came upon 14 coins of Gordianus, Alexander Severns etc. lying on top of the coin drawers. Whether the thieves have brought them back, or whether Hull put them there I do not know, but I left them for him to see.
